Central Georgia EMC Is Prepared For Severe Weather

The threat of severe weather is upon us. In the event of a power outage, you can trust that Central Georgia EMC is ready to respond.

The primary cause of most power outages comes from damage to power lines due to falling trees and branches. We work year round, through right-of-way clearing, to ensure power lines in our service territory stand little risk of being damaged by trees, branches, or other types of vegetation.

Despite our best efforts, during major storms, damage can occur to substations and power lines. When this happens, our priority is safely restoring power to as many members as possible in the shortest amount of time.

We start by mobilizing our line crews and other critical staff. Every phone line available is utilized to take your outage report calls. The big problems are handled first – our line crews inspect substations to determine if the problem starts there, or if there could be an issue down the line. If the root of the problem is at the substation, power can be restored to thousands of members.

Next, line crews check the service lines that deliver power to neighborhoods and communities. Line crews repair the damaged lines, restoring power to hundreds of people. If you continue to experience an outage, there may be damage to a tap line outside of your home or business. Make sure you notify Central Georgia EMC so crews can inspect these lines.

We will do our best to avoid power outages, but sometimes Mother Nature has other plans. During major outages, use your smartphone to see the latest restoration updates on our Facebook (CentralGeorgiaEMC) and Twitter (@CentralGAEMC) pages.
